December came just as quickly as November. Life is a big slide and as we get to the end it seems to pick up speed. I think I read that in my old autograph book but I didn’t know the meaning until recently.
Women in Touch for December was another good program and we had a full house. At least three hundred women gathered in the fellowship hall to enjoy an evening of entertainment.
We enjoyed some practical ideas for entertaining during the holidays from a Pampered Chef consultant. Children from Helen Hyatt Elementary School sang Christmas songs for us. Kerrie Schnell told us the story, “Red Mittens.” Sarah Gilbert sang “Oh Holy Night.” Cherie Smith gave a little talk on prayer.
I know you are wondering what we served. We had Chicken Rollup’s, corn, cranberry sauce, salad with candied walnuts and cranberries and dinner rolls. Dessert was Christmas cookies.
The cooks arrived at the church at 9 am and we were finished preparing by 12. In the afternoon we cook the food and get the desert on the tables plus a hundred other things that have to be taken care of.
Every year the ladies bring a children’s gift and wrapping. All of the gifts are taken to the Good Neighbor Center for the grandparents room.
If you are interested in doing something like this in your church please contact me. Just leave a comment on this blog and I will be happy to help you.
